Retouching old family photos
I'm finding that a great way to expand my understanding of Aperture and the Nic Collection is to retouch old family photos. All the photos need adjustments ranging from slight to severe, and the trial and error method really enhances my ability to expand my utilization of the software. After viewing the results and sharing with family members, I'm really enthused to continue with the project. #niccollection

On the Fly
This image is created from a first attempt at using an iPad to remotely control the Sony a6000, along with a little creative post-processing on the iPad.

Fireworks Fun
I didn’t have a tripod during the recent fireworks display, so I decided to experiment with out of focus shots. This is a blend of images captured with a Sony a6000 and post-processed with an iPad and a Mac.

Stopped at the Crossing
An almost unusable iPhone 5S image shot out the car window with intense backlight from the sky. Used Aperture and Nik’s Dfine, Silver Efex Pro 2,  Analog Efex Pro 2 and Color Efex Pro 4 to salvage the photo.

Thanks to +Gene Malymeik for suggesting I create a B/W image from the original I posted. This is one of my first attempts with Silver Efex Pro 2.

Here's an image from 2011 (Pentax K100D Super) which I have always liked. I recently started learning the Nik Collection. This is the first image I have posted using Aperture > Dfine 2 > Viveza 2.
